Two men were stabbed Sunday night at the Mall of America in Minnesota in what police are claiming was an attempted theft.

Police identified the stabbing suspect as 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman.

"The initial investigation has revealed that one of the victims returned to the dressing room after trying on clothing and found the suspect attempting to steal his personal property," Bloomington Police said in a press release. "A confrontation ensued and the suspect pulled a knife and stabbed the victim. The second victim, who is related to the first, heard the confrontation and intervened and in doing so was also stabbed. The suspect received minor injuries from the victims while they disarmed him."

"Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, 20 years old from Minneapolis, is being held on 2 counts of 1st Degree Assault," Bloomington Police said.

One witness said watching the stabbing was the scariest experience of her life:

Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman is a Somali name and Abdirahaman is likely part of the large Somali Muslim population imported into Minneapolis over the last few decades.

While the police claim this was a robbery attempt, a Somali Muslim carried out a similar mass stabbing terror attack one year ago at another Minnesota mall in St. Cloud:
